Product Description

Upscaling 1080p DVD Player with HDMI. EasyLink to control all HDMI CEC devices via a single remote

From the Manufacturer

Enjoy sharper, clearer pictures with the Philips DVD Player. This player features progressive scan technology to deliver detailed, natural-looking images to your TV. DVD upscaling converts standard-definition video signals to HD, while ProReader Drive technology lets you play old discs that have been smudged or scratched. The player reads DVDs, CDs, and a variety of other disc formats and includes a USB port on the front so you can play digital music and videos.

Plays Virtually Any Disc, Worry-Free

The Philips DVD player reads nearly any disc, including DVDs, CDs, video CDs (VCDs), super video CDs, DVD-R and DVD+R discs, and DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs. In addition, ProReader Drive technology enables you to play old discs that are smudged or scratched. ProReader Drive converts weak analog signals into robust digital ones, extracting enough information for less-than-perfect discs to play smoothly.

You can also play digital video and music files from a USB flash drive thanks to a USB port on the front of the unit.

Progressive Scan for Optimal Image Quality

This DVD player features progressive scan technology, which doubles the vertical resolution of the image, resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising odd lines to the screen first, followed by a field with even lines, both fields are written at one time. Consequently, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.

CinemaPlus for Realistic Pictures

Built into the player, CinemaPlus analyzes each pixel in each frame and optimizes sharpness and color stability. The result is clear, realistic images with greater detail.

DVD Upscaling through HDMI

The player features DVD upscaling technology that converts standard-definition movies into high definition through the HDMI output. HDMI is a direct digital connection that can carry digital HD video as well as digital multichannel audio to deliver optimal picture and sound quality completely free of noise. The result is pictures that are more vibrant and lifelike on the screen.

Use Just One Remote Control

Thanks to Philips's built-in EasyLink technology, you can conveniently use the included remote control to operate the DVD player as well as connected devices, including TVs and set-top boxes. EasyLink uses industry-standard HDMI CEC protocols to share functionality between devices through the HDMI cable. The TV also includes on-board touch panel control for easy access and operation of channel, volume, menu access, and power.

Product and Warranty Information

The DVD player measures 1.53 by 12.2 by 8.23 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 4 pounds.

The Philips DVD Player is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

It's frozen on being "off" Unplugged.

My grandfather called the Phillips customer support number, and spoke with a very rude lady who said there was nothing she could do for him.

It's very easy to use in the dark just by feel.

I actually ordered the DVP 3560, an older and slightly more expensive machine. It was sold by a third party seller and Fulfilled by Amazon. Well, the seller had it listed wrong and I received the 3680. At first I was upset as it was not region free as advertised and PAL disks showed "Error" on the display (and no error message on the TV). However, after a brief internet search, I found a very simple workaround that can be done with the 3680's remote. The player now does a beautiful job with my European DVDs and, thus far, I'm very happy with its performance and features.

For those who are interested, here's an easy way to make the 3680 region free:

1. Power ON the DVD player with no disc inside
2. Go to the SETUP icon and press OK; next, scroll down to Preferences.
3. With preferences highlighted,
3a. Press NEXT CHAPTER (button above AUDIO, it looks like this: >|),
3b. Press PREVIOUS CHAPTER (button above SUBTITLE, it looks like this: |<)
3c. NEXT CHAPTER >|
3d. PREVIOUS CHAPTER |<
4. The OSD will show the current Region Code
5. Press the Navigation Up or Navigation Down buttons to
select your desired region, or 0 for region free
6. Press OK to confirm your region selection

I'm really hard on DVD players, sometimes doing marathon movies or season episodes. Generally, I watch DVDs instead of TV. I began with GoVideo (1 year), then Magnavox (2 years), then same Magnavox (6 mos), then Sony (3 months - what a waste of $80). I bought this little $40+ DVP fully expecting to trash it after a couple months, but in the end I can't say enough about this Philips DVP. Stellar is pretty close. I don't use the MP3 feature much. This review is predominantly about it's DVD features.

Here's the thing with DVD players: they burn out, don't track right, sometimes can't get the disc in or out because the tray breaks down. But this has been a workhorse machine.

One of my favorite features is the ipod style remote, not rows and rows of buttons I never use. It's very easy to use in the dark just by feel. It fires up with a "count-to-three second" digital delay without complaining and has very low to nonexistent standby noise. If I get sidetracked in another room or fall asleep, it goes into standby automatically. Then, if detecting continued neglect it goes to shutdown, protecting the motor from overheating. It even turns off my Toshiba TV to boot (well, technically turns it to black screen which saves pixels/LED. You'll have to shut it off yourself). However, if TV is turned off first, DVP automatically turns off with it, so it's a one-click operation, no separate command with the Easy Link feature. When I come back and click "ON" with the remote, the movie fires back up to the spot where I left off, with a few second rewind to get re-oriented in plot. Other DVPs would still be running in the morning if I accidentally fell asleep. The Philips 3680 plays through the movie, detects standby after several minutes of root menu, then shuts down when ignored.

I ordered this DVD player after buying a spanish miniseries and french dvds. I was looking for a dvd player that could handle multiple regions. By following the instructions posted by another reviewer (first one in the most useful reviews), I changed it to region 0 for all regions and now I am watching a european DVD with very nice images, crisp picture and excellent sound.

I bought this for my teenager and was excited that he can play video files off a flash drive. He likes to download videos and instead of having to convert them he can just watch them from the flash drive.

What I Like:
- Plays DVD+RW disc without skipping
- Simple menu
- The High Speed USB: Reads wma files and burn CD's to mp3's, I can use my IOGEAR 12-In-One Pocket Flash Memory Card Reader/Writer, GFR209A (White). I put a memory card in the IOGEAR and plug the IOGEAR into the USB on the DVD player.
- Can fast forward or rewind 2x to 32x fast, also has slow motion (don't remember how slow)
What I Don't Like:
- When I put the HDMI setup to upscale to 1080p it messes up and my TV (Samsung UN22D5003 22-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (Black) [2011 MODEL]) said the mode was not supported. Then I had to unplug the HDMI cable, plug in the RCA cables to view the menu, and it only upscales to 1080i not 1080p.
- The manual said it reads avi video files but it doesn't play my videos. I hear the sound with no picture only the message "Video codec not supported".
- Also you can't select songs to make a playlist. It just plays all the song in that folder.
- When I first got it the disc tray wouldn't come out and when it did open it wouldn't go back in. It finally did and it working without any problems now
Overall: Does just about everything it said it would and I want it to do. I bought this from Amazon during the Black Friday deals for 39.99. I am very happy with it.
